Creeptastic eye pies

"Look into my pies"

Baker Lorraine Elliott has just the thing to bake this Halloween: creepy, vanilla-scented rhubarb "eye pies." A conversation with her friend Nina inspired them:

"I'm so hungry I'm going to eat someone's face off!" she said with madness in her eyes, while kneeling dangerously close to my face.

"How long have you been on this diet?" I asked.

"A day," she said solemnly.

...I offered her a rhubarb tart but alas that wasn't high protein enough. Moral of the story: eat pies even ones with eyes or you could possibly want to eat someone's face off.

Go to her blog, Not Quite Nigella, for the recipe.
